Lake & Reservoir

The Herington Lake & Reservoir are located just one mile west of the City of Herington. The sites offer electric pedestals for RV camping, swimming areas and fishing opportunities for white and largemouth bass, walleye, catfish and crappie. Both the lake & reservoir provide a diverse fishery and crappie and channel catfish are stocked annually. There's also an abundance of game in the Herington area, and public hunting (for migratory wildfowl only) is allowed at the Herington Reservoir.

Motorized boats are required to be inspected prior to putting on the lake or reservoir.
